My First Visit
What to expect?
On your first visit to our office, you will be welcomed as a member of our family and our receptionist will greet you with a warm smile. You will then be asked to fill out some forms which will help us gain some information about yourself and your condition.
Dr. Johnson will then talk to you and ask you some specific questions regarding your condition to determine if chiropractic care may be of benefit to you. If Dr. Johnson can help you, the doctor will let you know. If Dr. Johnson cannot help you, you will be referred to a doctor that will be able to help you the most.
After a thorough consultation with the doctor, you will have a complete chiropractic examination. This will include testing your reflexes, your ability to turn and bend as well as other standard orthopedic, neurologic, postural, and physical examinations. The doctor will gain valuable information regarding your condition so that a better understanding of how chiropractic can help you. If necessary, the doctor may take X-Rays.
Once all the information and examinations have been performed, the doctor will give you a report of findings and tell you recommendations for treatment.

Advance Chiropractic offers three choices of care:
Option 1 – Band aid care – treatment consist of three times per week until the patient has achieved the results they are looking for. This type of care goes week by week.
Option 2 – Corrective care – three times a week for 12 weeks. The first goal is to improve spinal range of motion and improve spinal joint motion as well as proprioceptive input. Second, to strengthen spinal musculature and make the spine more stable. Three, to improve spinal alignment and improve posture to near normal dimensions.
Option 3 – To maintain a healthy spine and prevent future problems. Also to prevent movement deficiencies and spinal toxicities. This will help keep you from developing a chronic stress response. (To learn, make sure you attend our nutrition/wellness class.) Care requires one adjustment every two weeks depending upon the person. Each visit consists of a spinal adjustment, spinal exercises, spinal strengthening machines, trigger point therapy, stretching, and spinal postural traction.
